You are correct. All questions have to be answered correctly the first time and there is no re-submissions to change a answer.

it pays off to go to school and take a diesel class..
Yes it does. Except I'm not in a diesel class. The only one I'm really concerned about is the SUV to be honest. There is a little ambiguity in that term, Since it was only coined a couple decades back. Just curious, would a vehicle that came out, before "SUV" was a term, count.
